I am lucky enough to live in one of the top winemaking regions in the country.  Michigan’s northwestern lower peninsula is dotted with dozens of award-winning wineries, enough to rival California’s Sonoma Valley.  Access to so many amazing wines has turned me into somewhat of a closet wine snob, and also means that a bottle of wine is my go-to gift for almost any occasion.  Next time you pick out a nice Gewurztraminer or Riesling to share with a friend, here is a novel and inexpensive idea to dress it up.  Taryn from Formal Fringe used a pair of knee socks as a wine bottle bag!  Not only is it a cute, whimsical idea, but the pair of socks doubles as a bonus gift!  [how to wrap a wine bottle with a knee sock]

Project estimate:

  • Bottle of wine, on hand or about $10 and up
  • Knee socks, $1

Total:  $1 and up
